The PGA TOUR travels to Malaysia where the three-week Asian Swing begins with the CIMB Classic.   This limited-field invitational has grown in reputation with golfers from all over the world.  TPC Kuala Lumpur is a short par 72 that measures just 7,005 yards in length.  It will be one of the easiest courses these golfers will play on all season.  Ryan Moore and Justin Thomas have both won this event back-to-back times so Pat Perez has history on his side as he looks to defend his title.  Lately, winning scores have been greater than 20 under so that should be the benchmark for what is needed to contend here.  Overall, both strategic golfers and big hitters have gone well here over the last five years, but what is essential is a solid approach game that sets up plenty of scoring chances.  Finally, the latest weather forecast for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia can be found here.

The FGI PGA Interactive Model is going to assist us with our lineup building process because it identifies the golfers with solid Recent Form and whose Key Stats set up nicely at TPC Kuala Lumpur.  It also allows us to factor in Course History as well as an emphasis on Vegas (odds to win).  Below are the FGI PGA Interactive Model Overall weightings I will be using this week along with the Key Stats weightings for the CIMB Classic provided by our friends at Fantasy Golf Metrics:
